Blue barrel with gold coloured top and section. The pen has clearly never been used, it is mint - no scratches or damage whatsoever. The press down and lever release works as it should but the ink has dried and therefore the pen is not working at the moment. I haven't tried very hard to get it to go - a bit of effort might produce results but a refill shouldn't be hard to find. Anyway - this is a' Biro' ballpoint in its original hard box. A bit of pen history.
